A Notice From the Moderating Team Regarding the Sussex Forum

The atmosphere in the Sussex forum these past few months has become untenable. Endless bickering, in-fighting, snarky comments directed at all and sundry, off-topic discussion -- not to mention the complete disregard for in-thread moderator warnings on multiple occasions.

This past week, it has all come to a head and the TRF Moderating Team has no desire to allow the Sussex forum to continue as it has been. It is untenable long-term, and makes browsing the Sussex forum an unsavoury experience for the larger portion of our membership base.

Why should members who follow the rules and contribute to a civil discussion be penalised when a thread is closed and they no longer have the option to discuss a topic that interests them because other members are unable to follow the rules and respect the opinions of others?

As such, several suspensions have been issued to the members often found involved in the above issues, in our attempt to return the Sussex forum to an atmosphere that is pleasant for our members.

Moving forward, we expect our members to act civilly, reasonably and responsibly. Those that do not, will find themselves facing a suspension.

Any posts that feature any of the below will be removed by a member of the moderating team:
  • Insulting comments directed towards the royals, other posters, the Markles or members of the media
  • Subtle - or not subtle - accusations of racism towards other posters or members of the media
  • Off-topic remarks
  • Aggressive tones
  • Agenda-driven posts
  • Bickering
  • Repetitive and circular discussion

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and as long as it does not break any of the TRF Rules and Guidelines and meets the above principles, it may be posted here.

The Sussex General News thread will be host to discussion - as relevant to current news stories - about Meghan's family and the relationship between the Sussexes and the media. However, the moderating team reserves the right to revert to our original decision of not allowing these two topics to be discussed here should posters revert to the original behaviour that saw the Markle Family thread closed permanently.

Any and all issues are to be directed to the moderating team via private message.
